self defense class chicagoDue to the recent events that have affected our community, many people are asking for a way to feel protected. The loss of Foxy Goat has crushed many of us and changed the way in which we think we are safe in our homes. All of the profit for this class is going as a donation in her name to assist the 1901 Gallery Theater.

Effective self-protection is by its nature quick, violent, and dirty. It is not about kicking someone’s ass, egos, or looking tough. The purpose of this class is to share knowledge about how to cause enough damage, swiftly, ruthlessly, and unexpectedly, so that a victim can escape from an attacker and protect themselves from any further harm. It isn’t pretty, elegant, sporting, or honorable.

While avoiding conflict and being in danger is always the best strategy, sometimes that is not a possibility. The Quick, Violent, and Dirty Self-Protection seminar is designed to teach students about how to prepare for imminent assault, how to use the body’s natural weapons, and when and how to employ highly effective force-multipliers to inflict debilitating damage on an attacker with the purpose of preserving one’s safety, well-being, and own life.

Quick, Violent, and Dirty Self-Protection is a two-hour intensive lecture and demonstration of a few specific techniques, methods, and courses of action that can be learned easily and practiced repeatedly until they become second-nature survival strategies.

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who had practiced one kick 10,000 times.”—Bruce Lee
